Wrapping up this month at the “Weird Science” series, Tim Sackett chats via video with William Tincup, Principal Analyst at KeyInterval Research, on the latest science (or lack thereof) behind successful succession planning. (Hint: Does technology give you the answers on who should replace Sally when she leaves, or does it render the decisions that you’ve already made? Just a quick preview thought from the ever-insightful Tincup.)
When you’re finished with the video, check out this month’s series blog post here.

If you Google “Tim Sackett” you’ll find our Tim, and a truck driver chaplain. Our Tim is NOT the truck driver chaplain, although how awesome would that be if he was!? He is a prolific writer in the HR and TA space who just happens to also run an Engineering and IT contract staffing agency (HRU Technical Resources) out of Michigan. He also writes every day at his own blog, the Tim Sackett Project. Weirdly, he’s known as an expert in workplace hugging, which was kind of cool years ago, but now seems painfully creepy, but we still love him and he’s fairly harmless. Tim is also on the board of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), lifetime Michigan State Spartan fan, husband to a Hall of Fame wife, 3 sons, and his best friend Scout. He also wrote a book with SHRM called The Talent Fix, you can find it on Amazon.
